Nancy, I have a vague sense, I say vague because I haven't been to my pilates class since last October. If you like the tapes you should consider trying to take an introductory class somewhere. I got started as much to support a dance friend of mine who was opening her own studio as for the workout, so I took her intro course which was 8 classes long. She really explained the technique, compensations when you can't do it right off, working in your torso and the linking moves. I had a tape but didn't like it, I didn't understand the rythmn of it. If I could only get my workday in order then I'd be back. I used to go at my lunch hour but I'm working through it most days, I'm so late getting started.. I used to be in by 8.30 but now it is more like 9.15 and I spend my life running to catch up.
My current issues are my inner thighs, or should I say inner pies (too much good stuff at Christmas). There is no stretch left in me at all. I've lost all my limberness and it makes me feel so old. I guess it is what you get when you are pregnant or nursing for 3 solid years, especially at my age... will menopause feel like this???[xx(]
